French Toast

  • 1 Loaf Crusty artisan loaf ( I prefer sourdough or a french loaf)
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Bananas Foster topping

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 bananas peeled and sliced
  • 3 tbsp spiced rum 80-90 proof

Optional (but not really)

  • Vanilla bean ice cream for serving


  • In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk, cream, sugar, cinnamon, and Vanilla. Grease a medium-sized square baking dish or pan with butter. Take your loaf of bread and tear it into chunks, filling your baking dish. Avoid making the bread chunks too small. Once the bread has filled the dish, pour your liquid mixture over the bread, making sure to cover the pieces evenly. Allow resting in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight. Once you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350° F and bake for about 45 minutes.
  • Once the French toast is finished, Melt your butter and sugar in a large pan. Add your banana slices and brown on both sides, try not to flip them more than once or your banana slices will start to break up. Make sure the pan lid is near, Remove from heat and add the rum. Using long reach candle lighter carefully light your sauce on fire. Using a long-handled spoon, spoon the flaming sauce over the bananas until it burns out. Pour the sauce over the French toast and dot the top with small scoops of vanilla bean ice cream. Serve immediately.
